I'm forced to wear headphones when playing games on my 360, imagine that! Sad really.

Too bad all the 360 exclusives don't appear on the PS3 or I would've gotten rid of it a long time ago.

Oh well.

yo gaming get a surround sound :) I dont hear any noise.

Gamingisfornerds5047d ago

Yeah, but I can't turn up the sound much anyway because of the other people living here. The 360 is really loud and you have to turn up the sound quite a bit to get some proper aural feedback.

It's not that I can't cope this way, but I think it's kind of lame MS had to stick the cheapest, loudest and crapiest DVD-drive in there. ;)

Wow, a CS Rep gives a stupid answer! Stop the press!!!

Just turn up your sound a bit and STFU! or buy one of the newer versions with the BenQ drives.

It still doesnt change the fact that its LOUD!!! I shouldnt have to turn up my sounds to try and drown out the [email protected] sounds from the drive

367 To Your Ass5047d ago (Edited 5047d ago )

the reason for the 360 being so loud is because of the DVD drive inside, not the two huge fans in the back LOL, ANYONE WHO HAS A 360 will understand that first hand.


i had 3 360's and i found this out, I returned 2 kept 1 ( I needed the money don't ask why )
